Is any type of stress “good”? Brief minor bouts of stress are sometimes referred to as “good” stress because they can be motivating. This sort of stress can focus a person’s attention and energy to help them complete a task– like preparing for an important social or professional obligation. If the stress is short-lived and the person is young and healthy, then the short-term, “good” stress won’t likely have lasting repercussions.
“Good” stress is a bit misleading, as short-term stress, especially as the body ages, can also be dangerous. Short-term stress can induce a heart attack or stroke, cause a spike in inflammation, disrupt sleep, or cause gastro-intestinal issues.
The coronavirus pandemic may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a new disease and what could happen can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Public health actions, such as social distancing, can make people feel isolated and lonely and can increase stress and anxiety. Coping with stress in a healthy way will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger.
It’s the recurring, long-term or chronic stress that is the greatest threat to a person’s health. In addition to sensitizing the brain and increasing its susceptibility to stress, long-term stress can cause immune system overactivity resulting in inflammation, artery calcification, and many other ill effects.
